Pulled a muscle reffing soccer this morning so I was limited to watching my feeders this afternoon.
I saw something I have not seen before. A large Mourning Dove under a box feeder spread its wings and flapped them to chase away a squirrel. It actually made a rush at it to chase it from its feeding spot several times. I have never seen that by a Dove before.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
